In traditional white collar crimes, prosecutors use a paper trail of evidence to attempt to prove charges against a defendant. In internet crimes, the evidence is usually collected from data contained on your hard drive and other devices. Forensic examiners are able to recover evidence on digital devices even after those files have been erased.
